  •  FIRESTORM II – New Ceramic Grain     CA/Y Plus (Stiff)    
    • FIRESTORM II has a finer crystalline structure than our Original Firestorm material, allowing each mineral to resharpen more often providing longer life and faster cutting (up to 30% longer than our original Firestorm Ceramic material).  Stays sharp with a lighter work pressure than our “Original”.
    • Works great on most metals including titanium!      Tip for use on Titanium – run at slower speeds (2500 sfpm)
  •   ORIGINAL” FIRESTORM Ceramic      C/A/X Plus (Stiff)     “Prices Reduced”
    • Still a favorite on carbon steel, 400 series stainless and Inconel
  •   BLUE CERAMIC     CA/J Plus (Flexible)     “Prices Reduced”
    • Ideal when flexibility is needed or when finer grits are required (80-220-J)


  • ZA/Y Plus (Stiff)          GREEN ZIRC


  • AO/Y Plus (Stiff)            BROWN AO (Heavy Duty)     (Call for availability & price)

Surface Conditioning

  • Surface Conditioning belts can be used to perform detail work such as blending, polishing, cleaning, contour finishing, deburring edges, fine finishing, flat finishing, setting the grain, stainless steel finishing, and attaining straightline-brushed finishes on a variety of metals. They can be used on conventional belt machines and air sanders.

    “Can’t say enough good things about the guys at Preferred Abrasives I’m about to start a marathon day of grinding and knowing that there’s a wall of the absolute best quality and performing abrasives hanging at my back makes getting started a whole lot easier! The Original Firestorm ceramic is without question the most aggressive material removing belt we’ve ever used and unlike their orange and brown counterparts, they last FOREVER!! If you think the other brands last forever you have no clue what forever is. Message Zach, and he will put together a starter pack of their lineup. Everything you need to convince yourself that making the switch to Preferred Abrasives is the right direction for your knife grinding operation”

    “Second to none! Long lasting, fast cutting, and the best customer service possible!!!”

    End of day two and everyone has successfully ground, hardened, and tempered their blades. Preferred Abrasives Original Firestorm ceramics ran strong all day. Not bad considering Alex and I already ran them out for ??? orders. Most of these still have life in them. Tomorrow everyone will get the finish grinding and handling completed. Everyone picked scale materials this afternoon and there’s gonna be a full lineup of awesome knives.”

    We’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Nobody has better belts than Preferred Abrasives. Not only is the product superior, it’s also affordable. Zach is absolutely awesome to work with and he goes above and beyond to make sure we have everything we need. The “Original Firestorm” ceramics and ultra high grit finishing belts outperform every!! other brand we’ve run. Give them a shout and get yourself one of their Startup kits!!”
